Download as PDF 6596 Federal Register / Vol. 73, No. 24 / Tuesday, February 5, 2008 / Rules and Regulations DEPARTMENT OF TRANSPORTATION We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2007 (72 FR 71279) and proposed to supersede AD 2007–04–08, Amendment 39–14939 (72 FR 7559, February 16, 2007). That NPRM proposed to correct an unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states: Federal Aviation Administration 14 CFR Part 39 [Docket No. FAA–2007–0349 Directorate Identifier 2007–CE–094–AD; Amendment 39–15366; AD 2008–03–15] RIN 2120–AA64 Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of Transportation (DOT). ACTION: Final rule. AGENCY: A non-respect of the pilot door adjustment procedure could have damaged the stop fitting and could result in a consequent depressurization of the airplane. SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe condition as: rmajette on PROD1PC64 with RULES A non-respect of the pilot door adjustment procedure could have damaged the stop fitting and could result in a consequent depressurization of the airplane. We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe condition on these products. DATES: This AD becomes effective March 11, 2008. On March 11, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of EADS SOCATA TBM Aircraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 70–131, Amendment 1, dated June 2007, listed in this AD. As of March 23, 2007 (72 FR 7559, February 16, 2007), the Director of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of EADS SOCATA TBM Aircraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 70–131, dated July 2005, listed in this AD.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: VerDate Aug<31>2005 15:28 Feb 04, 2008 Jkt 214001 Discussion This AD requires you to inspect the pilot door locking stop fittings for correct length and replace any incorrect length pilot door locking stop fittings found. You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD docket. Comments We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of the cost to the public. Conclusion We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed. Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information provided in the MCAI and related service information. We might also have required different actions in this AD from those in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are highlighted in a NOTE within the AD. Costs of Compliance Based on the service information, we estimate that this AD will affect about 157 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it will take about 4.5 workhours per product to comply with the basic requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. Required parts will cost about $15 per product. PO 00000 Frm 00020 Fmt 4700 Sfmt 4700 Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. operators to be $58,875, or $375 per product. Authority for This Rulemaking Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA’s authority to issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the authority of the FAA Administrator. ‘‘Subtitle VII: Aviation Programs,’’ describes in more detail the scope of the Agency’s authority. We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in ‘‘Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General requirements.’’ Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this rulemaking action. Regulatory Findings We determined that this AD will not have federalism implications under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct effect on the States, on the relationship between the national government and the States, or on the distribution of power and responsibilities among the various levels of government. For the reasons discussed above, I certify this AD: (1) Is not a ‘‘significant regulatory action’’ under Executive Order 12866; (2) Is not a ‘‘significant rule’’ under DOT Regulatory Policies and Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and (3) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria of the Regulatory Flexibility Act. We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to comply with this AD and placed it in the AD Docket. Examining the AD Docket You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at https:// www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal holidays.

Airworthiness Directives; EADS SOCATA Model TBM 700 Airplanes

AGENCY: Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Department of 
Transportation (DOT).

ACTION: Final rule.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: We are superseding an existing airworthiness directive (AD) 
for the products listed above. This AD results from mandatory 
continuing airworthiness information (MCAI) issued by an aviation 
authority of another country to identify and correct an unsafe 
condition on an aviation product. The MCAI describes the unsafe 
condition as:

    A non-respect of the pilot door adjustment procedure could have 
damaged the stop fitting and could result in a consequent 
depressurization of the airplane.

    We are issuing this AD to require actions to correct the unsafe 
condition on these products.

DATES: This AD becomes effective March 11, 2008.
    On March 11, 2008, the Director of the Federal Register approved 
the incorporation by reference of EADS SOCATA TBM Aircraft Mandatory 
Service Bulletin SB 70-131, Amendment 1, dated June 2007, listed in 
this AD.
    As of March 23, 2007 (72 FR 7559, February 16, 2007), the Director 
of the Federal Register approved the incorporation by reference of EADS 
SOCATA TBM Aircraft Mandatory Service Bulletin SB 70-131, dated July 
2005, listed in this AD.

ADDRESSES: You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at https://
www.regulations.gov or in person at Document Management Facility, U.S.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

Discussion

    We issued a notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) to amend 14 CFR 
part 39 to include an AD that would apply to the specified products. 
That NPRM was published in the Federal Register on December 17, 2007 
(72 FR 71279) and proposed to supersede AD 2007-04-08, Amendment 39-
14939 (72 FR 7559, February 16, 2007). That NPRM proposed to correct an 
unsafe condition for the specified products. The MCAI states:

    A non-respect of the pilot door adjustment procedure could have 
damaged the stop fitting and could result in a consequent 
depressurization of the airplane.

    This AD requires you to inspect the pilot door locking stop 
fittings for correct length and replace any incorrect length pilot door 
locking stop fittings found.
    You may obtain further information by examining the MCAI in the AD 
docket.

Comments

    We gave the public the opportunity to participate in developing 
this AD. We received no comments on the NPRM or on the determination of 
the cost to the public.

Conclusion

    We reviewed the available data and determined that air safety and 
the public interest require adopting the AD as proposed.

Differences Between This AD and the MCAI or Service Information

    We have reviewed the MCAI and related service information and, in 
general, agree with their substance. But we might have found it 
necessary to use different words from those in the MCAI to ensure the 
AD is clear for U.S. operators and is enforceable. In making these 
changes, we do not intend to differ substantively from the information 
provided in the MCAI and related service information.
    We might also have required different actions in this AD from those 
in the MCAI in order to follow FAA policies. Any such differences are 
highlighted in a NOTE within the AD.

Costs of Compliance

    Based on the service information, we estimate that this AD will 
affect about 157 products of U.S. registry. We also estimate that it 
will take about 4.5 work-hours per product to comply with the basic 
requirements of this AD. The average labor rate is $80 per work-hour. 
Required parts will cost about $15 per product.
    Based on these figures, we estimate the cost of the AD on U.S. 
operators to be $58,875, or $375 per product.

Authority for This Rulemaking

    Title 49 of the United States Code specifies the FAA's authority to 
issue rules on aviation safety. Subtitle I, section 106, describes the 
authority of the FAA Administrator. ``Subtitle VII: Aviation 
Programs,'' describes in more detail the scope of the Agency's 
authority.
    We are issuing this rulemaking under the authority described in 
``Subtitle VII, Part A, Subpart III, Section 44701: General 
requirements.'' Under that section, Congress charges the FAA with 
promoting safe flight of civil aircraft in air commerce by prescribing 
regulations for practices, methods, and procedures the Administrator 
finds necessary for safety in air commerce. This regulation is within 
the scope of that authority because it addresses an unsafe condition 
that is likely to exist or develop on products identified in this 
rulemaking action.

Regulatory Findings

    We determined that this AD will not have federalism implications 
under Executive Order 13132. This AD will not have a substantial direct 
effect on the States, on the relationship between the national 
government and the States, or on the distribution of power and 
responsibilities among the various levels of government.
    For the reasons discussed above, I certify this AD:
    (1) Is not a ``significant regulatory action'' under Executive 
Order 12866;
    (2) Is not a ``significant rule'' under DOT Regulatory Policies and 
Procedures (44 FR 11034, February 26, 1979); and
    (3) Will not have a significant economic impact, positive or 
negative, on a substantial number of small entities under the criteria 
of the Regulatory Flexibility Act.
    We prepared a regulatory evaluation of the estimated costs to 
comply with this AD and placed it in the AD Docket.

Examining the AD Docket

    You may examine the AD docket on the Internet at https://
www.regulations.gov; or in person at the Docket Management Facility 
between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, except Federal 
holidays. The AD docket contains the NPRM, the regulatory evaluation, 
any comments received, and other information. The street address for 
the Docket Office (telephone (800) 647-5527) is in the ADDRESSES 
section. Comments will be
